My wife gave me the green light to order a 50" light bar and GenRight light bar mount! :D 23,000 lumens should help me make daytime of out of the dark! LOL Here's some preview pictures of the light bar on another Jeep back home and the GenRight light bar mount I ordered:

That's a lot of light! I saw a demo of that light at the Off Road Show in Pomona.
Congratulations.

Which light bar is that?

Reason I asks is because the only light bar I know is actually rated to those specs is the Baja Design OnX 51"...

In any matter, a 50" light bar is going to put out a lot of light :cool:

Cool light, I would like to get one but the mount your using wouldent last long on some of the trails I run up here, both sides of my windshild frame are bashed in pretty good. Id have to build one off the cage.

OK here's a bazillion dollar idea....
Make the same light but a bit shorter in length, put a rubber seal on the front of it, and mount it inside the windshield above the rear view mirror. Like the police lights in unmarked cruisers.
No brainer. Less chance of theft, out of sight out of mind, won't get ripped off by a low branch, keeps the beautiful sleek lines of the Jeep looking like the brick on steroids that it is, and stealthy.
Don't forget my royalties.

I will have to get the name of the one on the black jeep...I am buying it from a friend who is importing lights and this is one of them! :D For the price I couldn't pass it up! :D

Rigid Industries also has a light mount that is pretty solid. I am going with this one because the side arms are steel with adjustable arms to change the lighting angles if needed. It also has the horizontal support bar for the light as opposed to just the side anchors.

Only issue is potential glare back on the driver from the windshield. There is a 30" and 40 inch that could be done that way and also a great idea for anyone interested! :D

$520 shipped! :D Sent you his contact information! ;)


It's pretty stout and the light is rebuildable....rubber seal instead of glued and the light pods can be swapped out if they burn out! :D

If you put a rubber seal on the front and had it against the windshield no light would escape to glare back.
I'm wondering about the heat tho'. LED's get warm at that intensity.

Thanks for the link. I sent him a friend request on FB.

Very true...this light bar has the cooling fins on the back for being windshield mounted. Guess you could always attach micro fans on the back! :D

My 50" LED light bar is in and waiting on the GenRight light bar mount to arrive to install it! :D Chad Mandry who is a buddy and fellow Texan who hooked me up! :D


Here is a 40" LED light bar that my neighbor put on his jeep as well using the Rigid Industries mount:




And the 40" lighting up the garage in the day time with the garage door open!

That's next now that the bar mount is in place....then time to put up the lights! :D






Only thing left is to drill 2 mounting holes and then wire it up to the sPOD. Was going to flush mount the bar onto the cross bar but the casing to the light is a different setup so I had to use the side mounting arms to mount to the cross bar.

Completely done with the install with my wife making faces in the windshield! HAHA Took the hood mounted light bar off....Lisa claimed it for her Jeep once we get back to the mainland and packed it away to make sure nothing happens to it! :D






If you look in the center, that is me about about 200m away going out to get a "look back picture" from the last point my cell camera could take from the jeep to show what it looks like from there and here.



At 200m looking back at the jeep....funny part is that I could still see great farther back about double the distance. This thing is BRIGHTTTT!! Even at 200m it's testy on the eyes....and this is actually turning down the brightness on the phone to the bottom! :laughing:

some more pictures on the light this puts out! :D

This is the field in front of my house that leads to the next road and hill which separates from the golf course before the light bar:



This is after the light bar!
